About Me

My name is Deanna and I am a wife and mother (of one very special little boy), and fur mother (to two special girls).  I have been passionate about both Photography and animals for as long as I can remember.  Combining those two passions to start a Pet Photography business just seemed natural.

When I decided to become serious about photography I embarked on a diploma in digital photography.  I took every opportunity to learn that I could.  In fact, I still take every opportunity to learn.  Many hours have been spent perfecting my craft and researching new methods and equipment.  I try to keep up-to-date with the latest trends and techniques so that I can offer you a premium service.

Over the years I have donated a lot of time to the SPCA (and other animal rescues) to help fundraise, create marketing materials and adoption photos for animals who have not been lucky enough to find their forever homes yet.  It is important to me to give back and help where I can.

Dog Photography

‘Safety First’ is my motto!  I have spent a long time working on learning how to remove leashes, collars and even people from photographs to ensure that you can still get the photos you want but with the safety of the animal in mind at all times.

My own two dogs are very difficult to photograph, so they have helped me to perfect my skills in both editing and photography itself.

Cat Photography

Over the years I have spent many hours at the Rotorua SPCA taking cat photographs.  This formed a great basis for my cat photography service, as I’ve learned a lot by photographing cats that are in an unfamiliar environment.

Cats are naturally more relaxed at home and usually easier to photograph, however working under the pressure of taking cat adoption photos for the SPCA has taught me a great deal about how to work with cats.  Time and patience is key.


Other Animals

I have photographed bunnies, horses, goats and birds!  Pet Photography covers all pets, and I am open to new challenges!
